The third chapter, “Laying the Groundwork for NAFTA” explores the political and economic context preceding NAFTA, and the ways that Mexico’s elected officials and business interests paved the way for the agreement and have benefited from it. The chapter unpacks the concepts of food sovereignty and food security, and how a push toward food security has produced the possibility of a Mexico that no longer produces food.
